Imam Ahmad (rahimahu Llah) made a bequest that he be buried in Bab al-Tibn in the Qati’a cemetery. When asked about this, he responded,
“I have strong proof that there is a prophet buried in Qati’a, and I would rather be buried close to a prophet than to my very own father”
(Ibn Abi Ya’la, Tabaqat al-Hanabila, 1 . 188).
